There is loads on the market what do you guys use?

Meguiars i thought was good but found Peek even better with less work. The auto glym stuff was crap. Going to buy some again shortly Peek again or have you found any better stuff ???

Never heard of auto finesse. Is it online sales or can it be bought from dealers.

It's not my car or photo but was done with 00 wire wool I'm told

I've just bought a tub of the mercury polish after seeing that 50/50 pic and just waiting for the skyline to come back from mot so I can try it

I use Autosol for the really grimy bits and Britemax final shine for final polish as its a polish and sealant in one and leaves some protection
